Someone posted it in the other thread from Fourth Period. Apparently they were finalizing a contract...

Ahh thanks. I'd imagine that he would be our second line center with Benn shifting back to the wing. I dig.

He'll be overpaid and won't play over 70 games for his whole contract.

Radek Dvorak is a mystery to me. He's kind of just been a name you hear about but I don't know much about his game. What should I know?

Good grinding forward who can play on the PK and give some offense. I think he'll play on the fourth line for Dallas but I think its a good signing.

I like the Fiddler signing, I haven't seen enough of Pardy to comment but this doesn't sound promising. At least it isnt woywitka.

I do like Connolly if he can stay healthy, big if.

Isn't Dvorak a good shootout guy as well? I seem to remember him scoring the SO winner against us with Florida last season.

Dvorak is a fine defensive option, much like Vernon Fiddler. He was basically used in the Steve Ott / Adam Burish role for Atlanta last season, starting only 43.4% of the time in the offensive zone - tied for lowest on the Thrashers among regular forwards. His relative corsi score is a low (as it tends to be for people that take alot of faceoffs in their own zone) but his zone shift scores are excellent - the puck generally moves towards the other end of the ice when he's on the ice. QUALCOMP shows that he was pretty much used in all matchup situations for the Thrashers and the Panthers - the coaching staff wasn't worried about protecting him like mr. Pardy.

Dvorak was Atlanta's top PK'ing forward on the team by far and one of the better ones in the league overall. He will probably become the Stars' best PK'er as well - unless Vernon Fiddler returns to 2009-10 form.

Overall a very solid pickup I think. If you're signing depth forwards, you might as well be signing guys like Dvorak and Fiddler that you don't have to worry about getting caught out there against the other team's top lines.

TSN is saying our deal with Pardy is a 2 year/$2mill deal. That breaks down as $1mill a season...

HMM interesting...I thought that the initial reports had it as a 2 year/$4mil signing.

The 2 year/$2 mill would make a lot more sense

well ok, if it's 1 mill per season then I don't think anyone can complain about that signing. He's a large upgrade over Woywitka as the 7th defenceman.

Conflicting reports on the Pardy signing. TSN's ticker has had it 2 years $2 million. While other sites say 2 years $4 million.

Tsn's ticker had it wrong, I went back and looked and McKenzie even said it was 2 million per year.

I like the Ryder signing.

I wonder if that means we're out of the Connolly sweepstakes?
